Cigarette Fires

Lit cigarettes are one of the leading causes of residential and roadside fires. A negligent smoker who carelessly discards his or her cigarette without extinguishing it may cause serious property damage and injuries to innocent people.

Proper Disposal of Cigarettes

In order to reduce the risk of cigarette fires, smokers should learn how to properly dispose of their cigarette butts. If heeded, the following tips can eliminate cigarette fires altogether:

  • Never discard your cigarette without extinguishing it first
  • Do not throw lit cigarettes into trash cans or dumpsters, or out of the window of your car
  • Empty out ash trays regularly
  • If you drop a cigarette, do not just leave it. Extinguish and discard it.

While these tips may help smokers reduce the likelihood that they will cause a residential or roadside fire, accidents can still occur.
